On Tuesday morning, Wilco announced plans to release a new album, Ode To Joy, via dBpm Records on October 4. The album follows 2016’s Schmilco and comes on the heels of two solo releases, WARM and WARMER, from frontman Jeff Tweedy.

In tandem with the album announcement, Wilco also shared the first taste of Ode To Joy via new song “Love Is Everywhere (Beware).” In a statement included in the announcement, Tweedy says the following of the new track:

“There MUST be more love than hate. Right?! I’m not always positive we can be so sure. In any case, I’m starting to feel like being confident in that equation isn’t always the best motivation for me to be my best self – it can kind of let me off the hook a little bit when I think I should be striving to contribute more love outside of my comfortable sphere of family and friends.

So… I guess the song is sort of a warning to myself that YES, Love IS EVERYWHERE, but also BEWARE! I can’t let that feeling absolve me of my duty to create more.”

Ode To Joy will release in several formats, including deluxe colored vinyl with an accompanying book. The band will launch an international tour in support of the album in early September.
